I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Not acclimatized 220/365Liza
It was 96 degrees when I ran yesterday … at 5:30pm. By 8:30, I was a useless sweaty pile on the kitchen floor. Eliot brought me cold watermelon and I ate it on my back. I sat up to drink some Tailwind, and then I spent another 10 minutes on the floor. Shoot. So much for being acclimated to the heat. The running itself wasn’t bad, just the aftermath. I ended up getting in bed and falling asleep after a popsicle. Not impressive.
Right now, I’m packing up for the drive with the kids to Silverton, Colorado to pace my friend Brian at Hardrock. I can’t wait to pace Brian. But I am dreading the drive with Ruby and Asa, the Bickering Howards. Keep your fingers crossed I keep my sanity — just enough to pace and make the return trip.
Juliet made it to the Bench of Despair at Vol State, mile 183. Just 131 miles to go!
What’s making me happy:
